VANCOUVER — The Vancouver Canadians, High-A minor league affiliates of the Toronto Blue Jays, announced last week that former Skidmore College baseball player Jackson Hornung has made their opening day roster. Last Season, Hornung, a catcher, played with the Low-A Dunedin Blue Jays in Florida.

In 2023, Hornung had 62 plate appearances for Dunedin. He finished with a .442 OPS, hitting two doubles and one dinger. He also had a 1.000 fielding percentage.
